    Wouldnt they be suprised if the smashed cameras memory remained in tact and there were pics of them smashing it. There is no figuring idiots out.

    Default And God said, "Let there be rain"

    And so it was......and there was great rejoicing.......and swimming!

    Things didn't quite load correctly in the order I wanted. Once you've clicked through all pics and there uploaded, run them in reverse on pics 12 through 8 to get a better sense of motion of the elk.

    Wish I could show all the pics, it's pretty comical to see the elk playing. The water hole is pretty full now, not quite as full as we've seen it in the past, but everything is so much more lush now. Just makes everything fat and happy!

    Hopefully. Unfortunately cattle have been moved into the area where I killed my bull two years ago! Cattle and elk just don't mix.

    bluey,

    This is a pretty nice bull by most standards. But at the risk of sounding like I'm bragging on Arizona elk, this bull is really fairly average in comparison to what is out there. I'm not that great at guessing elk scores, but I'd estimate he's around a 320 score. His tines have decent length, but they're not super heavy.

    I think this bull could be pretty special in another year. I think he's still not quite done growing. The rut has started and the bulls will quit eating during the rut, but it's still early yet. If you look at the pic again, the bulls belly is that of a younger animal and isn't pot bellied like an older bull. I also don't think he's made it to herd bull status. He was not with any cows and again if you look at this pic, you can tell he's bugling. Old enough to be looking for love, but not quite old enough to be finding it.

    Now having said that, if he makes the mistake of crossing my path this year, I'll take him if I can. A 6x6 bull elk with archery gear is a hard earned trophy.

    Why wapiti? Wapiti is an American Indian word that translates to "white rump."

    Opening day today......worked a couple of bulls this morning but couldn't get close. Bugled a decent 6x6 to 50 yards this evening but he hung up there in some brush. Overall the rut seems to not be going full on, very little bugling.

    Setup an intercept tonite on a saggy bellied grandpa bull. Unfortunately the bull moved faster than we thought and I was about 5 seconds late to a spot that would have given a 30 yard shot. A bit bummed but it sure was fun.

    Sounds like you are having a great time.
    One of my big dreams is to hunt bugling Elk with my bow.
    Good luck with the rest of the hunt and I hope you get a nice one.
    Looking forward to the report and photos
